Over 400 Iron Man 3 Screenings Have Already Sold Out →
#Iron Man 3
Several early indicators are letting the film industry know that – duh – Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 is going to be a massive hit when it opens in the U.S. on May 3. The Wrap quotes tracking figures saying that the next Marvel movie is on pace to open somewhere around $160 million in its first weekend. And MovieTickets.com just came out and said that multiple early screenings already are sold out.
To be specific, the ticket-selling site says that more than 400 screenings worldwide for Iron Man 3 have already run out of tickets. In addition, more than 25% of the current domestic daily sales have been for Black’s sequel, with audience members snatching up advanced tickets so that they know they’ll have a seat – preferably in IMAX – on opening weekend.
This is in spite of a recent story saying that Disney was still negotiating a new contract with major theater chains, preventing some companies – like AMC and Carmike – from even putting advance Iron Man 3 tickets on sale to the general public.
"When I made Serenity, I said here’s one thing I’ll never do again — a movie based on something that some people know about and some people don’t, with tons of characters who all know each other and who you have to introduce. And then my second movie was The Avengers."
